October was our last visit to the 1700 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue, when two new buildings were finished up and a few more were on the way. At the time, we remarked on the inclusion of "commercial space," as required by the zoning code, but speculated that based on the design the developers never intended for businesses to open but instead would eventually convert those spaces to apartments. We still think that seems likely.
But we're not here today to think about the future of these buildings. No, we're here to make fun of some shiny bay windows.
On the plus side, at least they went with Temple colors, sort of.
